President: Construction begins on territory of over 10,000 sq km


January 25, Fineko/ President Ilham Aliyev has received a delegation led by Minister of Roads & Urban Development of Iran, co-chairman of the Joint Azerbaijani-Iranian Commission on Economic Cooperation Rustam Gasimi.

ABC.AZ reports that in the course of the meeting the president said that Armenia destroyed all our cities and villages during the occupation.

"Therefore, construction works have now started on this large territory - more than 10,000 sq km - but, as you can see, this is a very large-scale work. Hundreds of towns and villages were almost wiped off the face of the earth. Restoration work has begun, and, as I’ve already said, I hope that Iranian companies will take an active part in them," President Aliyev stressed.
